Happy Birthday Mother...WMSC13 57

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, September 4, 2010 @ 12:00 AM | , ,


Hi Friends! Time for another Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge! Thanks to all who played along last week, there were once again so many gorgeous projects!I made this card for my Mother-In-Law, Barbara, who will be celebrating her 79th Birthday on September 10th. I pulled out both the LF-127 Grand Scalloped Squares & the LF-126 Grand Squares die templates to create the 1st mat of the card then using the S4-127 Classic Scalloped Squares LG, S4-129 Classic Scalloped Squares SM, S4-126 Classic Squares LG, S4-128 Classic Squares SM die templates, I cut/embossed the additional two smaller layers. Using a sponge dauber, I inked the edges, adhered all the mats then stitched them together.I am lovin' all the beautiful images in the Roses In Bloom set! I inked up & stamped the medium size rose bloom & smaller leaf, then colored them using the following Copic Markers: combination: B00 Frost Blue, BG11 Moon White, BG13 Mint Green, BG18 Teal Blue, G99 Olive & YG95 Pale Olive. After coloring the images, I cut them out then attached them to the card using a yellow pearl brad.Of course I had to make a lil' tag using the S4-081 Tags Five die template ;) I pulled out the Afternoon Tea Sentiments set & stamped the sweet with LOVE sentiment & added a few lil' flourishes & teensy weensy pearls.

My family & I are not traveling this weekend, just hanging around at home :) Do you have any BIG weekend plans? Thanks so much for looking - Be Sweet!
